Lenny Williams is the emotionally powerful voice behind Bay Area R&B stars Tower of Power’s hit single “What Is Hip?” The Oakland native went on to a flourishing solo career, charting with Paradise Garage anthem “You Got Me Running” and the tearful slow-jam classic “’Cause I Love You.”
Nobody throws a dance party like !!! (pronounced chk-chk-chk), who’ve been reviving the down-and-dirty punk-funk sounds of ’70s and ’80s New York City since forming in Sacramento in 1996. But there’s also dark undercurrent running through !!!’s music that acts as a counterpoint to the glittering surface, as well as an increasingly leaner and more detailed take on their influences.(LCOoD)
